Royal Insiders Claim Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Can No Longer Remain In the UK Like This
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry might be on the move. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have experienced a difficult time adjusting to their new lives as a married couple, and the stresses of constantly living in the spotlight are starting to wear them down. While the two are putting on a strong face for the public, inside sources claim that they cannot live in the U.K. unless something changes.
Are Prince Harry and Markle going to relocate?
Prince Harry and Markle opened up about their struggles in a documentary titled Harry and Meghan: An African Journey. While Prince Harry all but confirmed his feud with Prince William, Markle admitted that dealing with the British media has been very tough.
Markle’s struggles only intensified following the birth of her first child, Archie Harrison, last May.
With the couple doing their best to cope with the situation, several sources told People that they are seriously considering setting up a home base outside of the U.K. Potential landing spots include South Africa, Canada, and the United States.
“It’s not possible for them to be [in the U.K.] like this,” a source shared. “There’s more pressure now. There’s a shift that is happening.”
In the documentary, Meghan Markle revealed that she tried to deal with the pressures of being a royal by developing a “stiff upper lip.” But those efforts only led to additional issues down the road.
She then admitted that she is barely surviving behind the scenes when her main goal in life is to thrive.
Luckily, Harry and Markle are about to get a much-needed break from their busy royal schedules. The pair is set to visit Los Angeles next month, where they will spend Thanksgiving with her mother, Doria Ragland.
It is unclear if they will be making any public appearance in California, but the break could not have come at a better time.
Where might Prince Harry and Meghan Markle move?
With Markle and Prince Harry set to stay in Los Angeles for six weeks, there has been a lot of speculation that they might move to the area on a semi-permanent basis. The former Suits star is very close to her mother, who was present when she tied the knot with Prince Harry in 2018 and helped her in the weeks following Archie Harrison’s birth.
The two have not commented on the moving rumors, but their upcoming trip to California has only fueled the flames. Another potential destination is Canada, where Markle spent a lot of her acting career. The Duchess of Sussex filmed Suits in Toronto for years and was living in the area when she started dating Prince Harry.
Lastly, there have been reports that Prince Harry wants to set up a base in South Africa. The family recently toured the region for 10 days, meeting with heads of states and charitable organizations in several different countries.
In light of the rumors, Prince Harry recently discussed the possibility of him and Meghan Markle relocating to Cape Town.
The Duke of Sussex revealed that moving to Africa is probably not in the cards – at least not in the immediate future.
“We just came from Cape Town, that would be an amazing place to base ourselves, of course, it would. But with all the problems that are going on there, I just don’t see how we’d be able to really make as much difference as we’d want to without the issues and the judgment of how we would be with those surroundings,” Prince Harry shared.
Markle gets support from British politicians
Although Markle has had a rough time adjusting to life as a royal, she recently got support from a large group of women politicians in Britain. A total of 72 women in British parliament wrote Meghan Markle a heartfelt letter of support as she continues her fight against the tabloids.
The members of parliament told Markle that they are uniting in support of her as she battles untruthful stories about herself in the media. They also slammed the press for attacking Markle’s family and for using what they called “colonial undertones.”
The letter, which was shared on social media, comes shortly after the former actress opened up about her struggles in the documentary. Markle and Prince Harry are also in the middle of a major lawsuit with several British tabloids, whom they claim unlawfully published personal letters.
Fans, meanwhile, have also expressed their support for Markle on social media and even created a hashtag, #WeLoveYouMeghan, to let her know how they feel.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have not addressed the moving rumors.
